This winter, New Look will be offering a festive discount to St Barnabas customers donating items.
St Barnabas Hospice has teamed up with fashion retailer, New Look, this Christmas to offer their shoppers an extra big thank you for supporting the charity. This applies to customers visiting the St Barnabas Hospice shops at Boston (Market Street), Skegness (Lumley Road), Spalding (New Road) and Lincoln (High Street South).
Following a successful pilot in the summer, New Look is launching a new customer discount initiative to support hospice care by encouraging more people to donate goods to their local hospice shops.
The high street store will be offering a 20% discount voucher to anyone who drops in a full bag of item donations to the listed St Barnabas Hospice shops. Donations must be received by the shops before Monday 13th January and the vouchers will be valid until Friday 31st January. Customers are limited to one voucher each.
Under the scheme, donors will receive a voucher which they will be able to spend at their local New Look store, all of which are only a short walk from the listed shops.
Nigel Oddy, Chief Executive Officer at New Look, said:
“As a company, we really care about being kind to our people and to our planet, therefore we want to make it easy for our customers to recycle their unwanted clothes whilst helping to reduce the amount of clothing waste that ends up in landfill. New Look is very excited about this partnership with Hospice UK to encourage our customers to donate their once loved clothes to their local hospice shop.
“Following the successful pilot for this initiative over the summer, we are delighted to be rolling this out nationally.
Caroline Peach, Head of Retail at St Barnabas Hospice, added:
“It’s wonderful to be working with New Look on this project. It helps people to declutter during the festive period and do something useful with their pre-loved clothes. We’re grateful for all the support of our customers and this scheme gives a little something back to them at no cost to the Hospice.
“Every item bought or donated in one of our Hospice shops helps us to provide more care across Lincolnshire to those living with a life-limiting or terminal illness, and their families and carers. Our shops sell a huge range of items, including clothing, accessories, household items, bric-a-brac, CDs, DVDs, toys and games.”
Customers can visit one of the four St Barnabas shops in Boston, Skegness, Spalding and Lincoln to take their donations, receive their voucher and browse a range of items at affordable prices. Please remember, donations must be received before Monday 13th January. Visit www.stbarnabashospice.co.uk/shop to view the full addresses.
